Front Brake lines leaking

So today I just noticed my front brake line leaking at the "T" and am planning on getting the Spiegler brake line kit. I'm curious what the kit looks like at that "T". Are the front brake lines one piece, or several pieces. Any pictures would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Looks like this. The kit comes with its own T, with fittings. Just throw out the existing one. Enjoy.

2 weeks ago, my front brake line at that "t" also broke. This happened to my '06 with about 45k miles. The break happened the day after I got home from a 2k mile 6 day vacation road trip. And in my garage. Boy, talk about providence! Watch the youtube video for installation by Kirk from BMW Illinois group. He's made one for the integrated abs and one for later model abs showing how to bleed each different servo. It's crazy how light the cables are when you get them versus how costly they are. But far cheaper doing them yourself. Good luck.
